2013 AgriInvest Program Year Changes
The Growing Forward 2 policy framework agreement comes into effect for the 2013 program year. Under this agreement, a number of changes were introduced for the AgriInvest Program. Producers can now contribute up to 100% of their Allowable Net Sales (ANS) once per year, with the first 1% matched by governments. Read about the changes.
Existing program parameters as outlined below remain in place for the 2012 and prior program years.

AgriInvest helps you manage small income declines, and provides support for investments to mitigate risks or improve market income. Your AgriInvest account builds as you make annual deposits based on a percentage of your Allowable Net Sales (ANS) and receive matching contributions from federal, provincial, and territorial governments.
After you submit a program year application, you will receive an AgriInvest Deposit Notice outlining the amount you can deposit into your account that is eligible for matching government contributions.
Deposits are made to your AgriInvest account held at a participating financial institution. Simply bring your Deposit Notice to your financial institution, and deposit any amount up to the maximum matchable deposit shown on your notice (providing your account balance does not exceed your account balance limit). You have 90 days from the issue date on the Deposit Notice to make a deposit to your account. Your financial institution will notify Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada once you have made a deposit and the matching government contributions will be credited to your account. You have the flexibility to withdraw funds at any time throughout the year.
AgriInvest is cost shared on a 60/40 basis between the federal, provincial and territorial governments.
AgriInvest is a self-managed producer-government savings account that allows producers to set money aside which can be used to recover from small income shortfalls, or to make investments to reduce on-farm risks.
For more information please contact the AgriInvest Administration.
AgriInvest is delivered by the federal government in all provinces except Quebec.
In Quebec, AgriInvest is delivered provincially by La Financière agricole.
